Uninstalling packages - How?

I have a post regarding this in the Software forum, but rather than clutter up the "real" forums with my newbie questions, I figured I'd repost it here.

I need to uninstall GD (two versions) and PHP so that I can reinstall 'them so that PHP recognizes the new version.

I've no idea where to start - any guidance appreciated as always.

Running Redhat 9.

for "rpm" packages, you can do "rpm -e nameofpackage" (see "man rpm" for details)
